Spring Wreath

This wreath has been in the works for awhile now.  Since I decided not to put my changeable burlap wreath on the front door, my empty door was really needing some kind of springy fun.  I again started with a straw wreath, left the wrapper on so I wouldn't have a huge mess on my hands, and used the hot glue gun.  This time I used twine instead of burlap, and only hot glued a dot here and there where I needed it.  I wrapped the whole thing, then went back and covered up the bare spots.  
I bought the little nest at Michaels for about $1.50, and had eggs left over from my earlier spring decorating here and here.  I was planning on just using the nest, but it blended too much with the twine and really needed some extra color.  Thanks to a girls night out to Hobby Lobby, I picked up some of these fun yellow flowers for the perfect touch.  Here's a few pics of the finished product.....taken in different areas of the house ~ it's amazing how different levels of light can affect how it looks! 




And finally on it's rightful place on the front door.....


Now all we need is some warm weather!!!

I have wanted to create a wreath for weeks now and wasn't sure what I wanted to create, until now! It is perfect for my house so I am creating my own version of it! I will post it and show you my take on it once it's complete! Thanks so much for the idea!
